“The Move” Giveaway #2 (AUS Only)

Let’s keep moving with “The Move”!!

A Quick Review of the last read:   Ironweed by William Kennedy

Winner of Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 1984 and Nantional Book Critics Circle Award 1983

Francis Phelan has no place to call home.  At least, none that he feels right to call home.   An accident in his past drove him away from ‘home’.  It is something that he will never forget nor maybe forgive himself.  In this book, we follow Francis as he relives moments of his former life, the good and the bad.  His ghostly past haunted him throughout and will never let him go.

My favourite passage… “Kisses come up from below, or down from above.  They come from the brain sometimes, sometimes from the heart, and sometimes just from the crotch.  Kisses that taper off after a while come only from the heart and leave the taste of sweetness.  Kisses that come from the brain tend to try to work things out inside other folks’ mouths and don’t hardly register.  And kisses from the crotch and the brain put together, with maybe a little bit of heart, like Katrina’s, well they are the kisses that can send you right around the bend for your whole life.”

Next Up (thanks, Shellyrae!): You Wouldn’t Be Dead for Quids by Robert G. Barrett

      One of my good friends just came back from Canada last Dec after a 2 yr stint. How long have you been there? Is it for work?

      I love Fantasy so I’m really excited to have found Your blof 🙂

        Thanks Tien 🙂 I have been here over six years now, and I can’t wait to get back to Brisbane. It started out as work then I met someone and started a family, so I can’t wait to introduce my kids to the delights of Australia. One of them is already a vegemite addict so we are half way there! 🙂

    Hello Tien, what a wonderful idea! I think you should read Abe Lincon: Vampire Hunter next, cause it’s been on my TRL for a while now, & the local Library list for it is looooooooong
